The Under 9's Tornadoes played Monton FC Sports at Beech Farm and made an impressive start with some crisp passing and good movement off the ball and opened the scoring via Oliver Percival. Attacks from Monton were few and far between but when the visitors did threaten to grab an equalising goal the Tornadoes defensive partnership of Aiden Lawton and Ashley Tonge remained rock solid. Joel Thorndyke was involved in the move that resulted in United's second goal when the Monton keeper couldn't hold Joel's effort on target and Oliver Percival netted the rebound. The Tornadoes keeper Freddie Wardle was rarely tested but showed a safe pair of hands when forced into action. The pattern of play was much the same during the second period with Monton forced to produce more excellent defending. Finley Fairhurst was on target with the Tornadoes third goal following a scramble inside the area. Edward Hughes was introduced into midfield and was soon involved in the action forcing the team forward more. Joel Thorndyke added a fourth goal for Beechy then Ellis O'Brien-Walsh was unlucky after a brilliant piece of skill when he saw his shot on the turn pushed onto the post by the Monton keeper. Tanatswa Chirwa came close to a goal following a corner just before defender Owen Hogben who had a great game hit the post with a low drive. United's fifth goal was the most enjoyable when Anthony Brophy collected the ball in the area and powered his way downfield past several Monton players to score a superb goal. Anthony will leaving the team soon to start a new life in Rochdale and both Team Manager Colin Duff and all the other players wish Anthony and his family all the very best for the future.
